Stop At: Louvre Museum, 99 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris France

Your 3-hour journey through some of the world’s great artistic treasures begins at the Arc du Carrousel, next to the Louvre entrance. Choose a morning, afternoon or evening tour and meet your English-speaking guide. Enjoy fast access to the museum with your skip-the-line pass and begin your tour through the massive venue, home to over 35,000 works of art spanning more than 73,000 square meters of exhibition space. Your entrance pass also provides complimentary audio headsets.

Wander the diverse exhibitions, starting with the Ancient Greek Parthenon, followed by the iconic Venus de Milo. While in the ancient antiquities’ gallery, view the celebrated Winged Victory of Samothrace. Then head to the Apollo Gallery to see the opulent royal crowns of Napoleon and King Louis XV. Get a taste of the French Revolution with Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People and take in the Italian Renaissance as you gaze at the work of Michelangelo and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. (See full sample list below.)

With your small group (limited to 25 people), engage in lively chats with your guide and hear entertaining anecdotes, trivia and history. Afterward, spend as much time as you like exploring the museum independently.

Please Note: Evening tours are limited to Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:30pm. For an extra unique experience, book an evening session and wind through the quiet corridors at night, when the crowds are gone, and the artwork is basked in soft light. Enjoy the tour without all the bustle, and finish with great views of the Louvre’s glittery outside pyramid lit up after dusk.

We had Julian as our guide and he was very engaging. He had a lot of great information, which made the experience very worthwhile. The Louve is massive and the lines were long, so this tour was so helpful, as it took minimal time to get in and Julian helped navigate where to go and what to see. Would highly recommend this tour.

Daniel was an entertaining and knowledgeable guide. The time went by too fast. His stories behind the art were fascinating. We’d highly recommend him and the tour.

Felix, the tour guide was knowledgeable, personable, and led the group well. This tour was by far the best we had while in Paris. He provided us with a good understanding of the background of various key pieces in the museum. Further, when asked about other lesser-known pieces, Felix was quick with knowledgeable answers.

Alex was an absolutely fantastic tour guide. We had a wonderful time. It was extremely informative and very interesting. I would definitely recommend having a guide to take you around the Louvre as it’s so large

After reading lots of reviews about entry to the Louvre we decided to pay for the guided tour and it was definitely worth doing. No queuing and our tour guide Reuben was absolutely brilliant, his knowledge of french history was extensive. Would definitely recommend.
